Say it again. Roll the "Rs" this time. Giada-style. Ooh yeah, that's the stuff.

Burrata is kind of like mozzarella, in the same way Moët & Chandon is kind of like André. Burrata is like mozzarella except that instead of being made by an angel like our own Paula Lambert, one can only assume that actual angels make this stuff. OK, Paula makes burrata too, but I'm trying to make a point here.

When you taste the burrata at Carbone's, where it's accompanied by chewy garlic bread and served simply with a drizzle of olive oil and a toss of sea salt, you just might want to bone it. Carbone it. In the face. Seriously -- your brain starts hearing Barry White and everything goes all slow motion-like and if you start to get a bit hot and/or bothered, it's totally normal.

Say you're the type of person who likes her eggs cooked over medium (I am). You'll truly appreciate the delicate, custard-like texture of this heavenly cheese. If you're more of a scramble or omelet person, that's OK, but eat this cheese anyway.

It just might elicit an out-of-body experience. And if you're like me, an "I'll have what she's having" out of the table next to you.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
